Blue Sky Mind: A Day Retreat

  • Fort Worth Botanic Garden 3220 Botanic Garden Boulevard Fort Worth, TX, 76107 United States (map)

This special day retreat will take us on a peaceful blissful journey into the stillness and clarity within.

In recent years our understanding and control of the external world have increased considerably and as a result we have witnessed remarkable material and technological development, but there has not been a corresponding increase in our happiness. This shows that happiness does not come from knowledge or control of material things. To experience true and lasting happiness we need to learn about our mind and the secret of inner peace by meditating on the clear and still nature of the mind itself.

This day retreat will include teachings on the mind, guided meditations and time for your questions.

Everyone Welcome!
